Pre-holiday checklist

Choose your quarantine free destination

We’ll only fly you to travel corridor destinations that don’t require a 14-day quarantine on return. Note that some places require a negative Covid-19 test on arrival. Always check the entry requirements of the destination you wish to travel to before you book. 

Get Covid-19 insurance

We strongly suggest you consider taking out Covid-19 cover. This will protect you against: cancellations if you or someone you’re travelling with catches Covid-19; enhanced emergency medical cover; costs for one other person to stay with the customer, or to travel to the customer from the UK and accompany them home; travel costs to and from the hospital or other medical appointments.

Top up your contactless holiday money card

Many shops and restaurants are now card-only - in some cases, contactless-only. It’s worth keeping some cash on you for small purchases, but we recommend you use a travel money card. The Caxton Currency Card offers fantastic rates and is accepted at over 35 million locations around the world.

Preparing to travel

72 hours before travelling: take a Covid-19 test 

Many destinations require a negative Covid-19 test to be taken 72 hours before travelling. This is a molecular test - usually a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test. Some destinations offer airport testing, but you're typically required to quarantine in your hotel until you receive the results. 

24 hours before travelling: fill out a PLF form for your destination

Most destinations now require you to fill out a passenger locator form (sometimes referred to as a traveller registration form or flight pass). Countries typically ask these to be filled out between 24-48 hours before you arrive or depart. 

What to bring:

  • Passport (with at least 6 months validity to be on the safe side)
  • Check-in confirmation for outbound flight
  • Completed PLF form or QR code for arrival country
  • Depending on destination, a negative Covid-19 test
  • Face masks (a new one every 4 hours) 
  • Hand sanitizer (under 100ml)
  • Contactless card or travel money card 

Before returning home

  • Make sure you fill out a UK PLF form 24 hours before you return to the UK.
